Harry Carey Award

Posted by Gordon on January 6, 2012

Bars and restaurants that last for any length of time are rich in legend and folklore.  The Arena is no exception.  There is a ten year tradition of regulars and employees and their epic stories.
If you are a regular and you contribute a story of your own, there is a good chance you will end [...]

Everyone’s a Critic!

Posted by Gordon on December 4, 2011

This blog was initially meant to be a behind the scenes view of bar and restaurant life from the eyes of a server.  I was to be unedited and anonymous.  The anonymous part was so that I could rat out fellow servers in an innocuous fashion.  I was an undercover witness, like a camera.  The [...]

10 Years Come and Gone So Fast

Posted by Gordon on October 6, 2011

we might as well be dreaming or something like that…
The Arena is 10 years-old Oct 16th! In bar years, the Arena is old as dirt! Downtown Ann Arbor is a tough place to survive for a restaurant and the Arena is still going strong.  Like any self-respecting person of a certain age, the Arena [...]

The Heretic Joins In

Posted by Gordon on January 14, 2011

The Arena is a Heretic of downtown Ann Arbor bars
the owners are Michigan State graduates in the middle of Ann Arbor (hey not everyone can get into U of M)
when banning smoking became the trend, well the Arena lit up a cigarette, a cigar, and a joint.
Basically, the Arena is too cool to follow the [...]

The Arena’s Oldest Employee: Julius

Posted by Gordon on October 25, 2010

I know I was supposed to tell you all the dirty secrets of the Arena Anniversary party
and don’t fret
I will
But timing is timing
Have you met Julius?  I have.  Julius has worked in the building that houses the Arena since it was Metzgers.  And after he spent the majority of his life working for the historic [...]

We Couldn’t Make This Up

Posted by Gordon on October 21, 2010

Fall at the Arena is an adventure
The servers work increasingly more hours
and those hours are more entertaining
Football season in Ann Arbor is one huge party every weekend
the town comes alive and doubles in size
students and adults alike can be seen staggering down the streets in drunken stupors. The silliness that comes from intoxication is pure [...]

The Arena Has What?

Posted by Gordon on September 16, 2010

This may come as a surprise to those of you that know the Arena and its employees, but the Arena has a running club.
I know, I know!  When you think of the Arena you think beer league softball, hockey, maybe even some stoner frisbee league…but not a running club!  I mean runners are usually healthy.  [...]

And Baby Makes….

Posted by Gordon on July 19, 2010

Yes, I know, it’s been too long since I’ve blogged.  And truth be told, the Arena and patrons seem much like they always seem.  We have the usual in-fighting which is more like sibling rivalry than deep anger.  We have the drunken exploits.  We have the innappropriate actions by randoms that walk in the door.  [...]

Spring is the Season for Drunk Love

Posted by Gordon on March 25, 2010

Maybe it has to do with the warmer weather or maybe all the drinking occassions…
But spring time at the Arena causes younger men to act foolish. Sure, we have a few servers that can look in the general direction of a man and he will fall to his knees and profess his undying love.
Yes, we [...]

The Bum Fighters

Posted by Gordon on January 24, 2010

No, not the band, that would be way better
literally bum fighters
not to worry, it doesn’t happen all the time.  But every so often, mostly near the 1st of the month, we get some skid row types looking to get drunk on the cheap. Given the Arena has great happy hour specials and is located very [...]
